Family Says Missing Mother Feared For Her Life
Woman Last Seen Near Point Loma School

March 25, 2008
Rosa Lisowski, 48, was last seen in Point Loma on Monday around 7:30 a.m., according to officials.

Police said she walked her son to Barnard Elementary School located at 2930 Barnard St. Since that time, Lisowski has not been in contact with family or friends.

"We're in shock," said family friend Wendy Agosto. "We don't understand. She didn't take anything with her, so she doesn't have any ID with her -- only had the keys of the house, took no money, no wallet. Nothing. I mean, she was not planning to go anywhere."

Family members told NBC 7/39 that Lisowski has been in a long custody battle with her husband. They said she told them she even feared for her life.

According to police, the woman's husband, Henry Lisowski, has been questioned by investigators. The department's domestic violence unit said they investigated at least one verbal threat Lisowski made against his wife earlier this year. That threat is being included in the current missing person investigation. Her husband is not considered a suspect in the case at this time, police said.

Lisowski, a mother of three, was last seen wearing dark sweatpants, a black fleece hooded jacket, and leather flip flop shoes. She's 5 feet 2 inches tall, 165 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 619-531-2000

Missing Mom's Kids Put In Protective Custody

SAN DIEGO -- Authorities have placed the sons of a missing San Diego woman in protective custody rather than leave them with her estranged husband.

******
I feel so badly for these kids.  To have such a great mom and then to have her gone is such a tragedy.

When is it time to take a threat seriously?  How do we get the message out there that one threat is too many.  So many people tell friends and family but not the police.  I know people who have called the police only to be told that if that person shows up in spite of the restraining order that the victim could be dead before the police ever get there.

How do we protect the victims and their children from these monsters?  There has to be a better way.  Mandatory counseling or probation or some sort of monitoring for each person who threatens?  I know the system is overburdened now.  Wouldn't it be a better use of personnel to get involved proactively rather than to get involved after the crime occurs.  That takes even more time.  It just happens too much.

What can we do?  How can we change things before the next victim falls?  Too late, by the time you have finished reading this another victim has been claimed.  Chilling, but true.

Missing woman, husband lived apart
Couple were in court fight for children, records show

April 3, 2008
SAN DIEGO – Their marriage of nearly nine years appeared to be an atypical union that fell far short of wedded bliss.

From the moment Henry and Rosa Lisowski eloped in Las Vegas in 1999, they lived in separate homes, according to divorce records filed by Henry Lisowski.

Last week, after nearly a year into the couple's bitter divorce and custody battle over two young sons, Rosa Lisowski disappeared.

Police have named Henry Lisowski, 66, as a person of interest in the case. No arrests have been made.

The 48-year-old woman was last seen March 24, when she walked her son to Barnard Elementary School in Point Loma at 7:30 a.m., San Diego police said.

Detectives on Friday searched Henry Lisowski's house in Ocean Beach and a day later served a search warrant on his boat at Quivira Basin on Mission Bay.

Divers also searched the water under the boat, San Diego police Lt. Terry McManus said. Investigators have not revealed the results of the searches.

Relatives are now caring for the couple's sons, ages 4 and 6.

The couple were scheduled to appear in court yesterday for their divorce, but a judge postponed the proceedings until July.

Henry Lisowski, who is representing himself in the divorce, did not show up for yesterday's hearing.

A family friend said last week that Rosa filed police reports earlier in the year indicating she feared for her safety.

According to court documents, the couple met at a swap meet in 1997. Henry Lisowski had been working for a small company that makes computer motherboards, while Rosa Lisowski was working as a caretaker for an older man.

Rosa Lisowski had crossed the U.S. border about six years earlier, her husband claimed.

In the courts records, Henry Lisowski said he married Rosa to secure citizenship for her, and that she signed a prenuptial agreement stating that the pair would keep separate property and that she would not be able to ask for spousal support.

However, she responded in records that she had never seen the premarital agreement and that her signature was forged. She said the idea to marry was his, and that she received a work permit each year to stay in the country legally.

Henry Lisowski listed himself as unemployed in recent divorce filings. He earned money by selling rental property throughout the county and investing the profits, according to court documents.

Somebody needs to smack ole Henry upside the head for looking like one guilty mofo from the get go! 

Let's see, he has a boat and access to Mission Bay.  Well duh.  Get out the underwater search equipment folks.

Poor Rosa.  She got so much more than she bargained for.  I wish women would make better choices.

Fundraiser Planned For Missing Woman's Children

April 16, 2008
Lisowski was last seen dropping off her son at Barnard Elementary School, police said.

Many people feel that hope for her safe return has dimmed.

"In my heart, I know she's gone. I've made numerous pleas to give back her body so we can have closure, so she'll be buried properly," said Lisowski's friend, Heather Peterson.

Police attention has focused on Henry Lisowski, Rosa's estranged husband who lives in Ocean Beach.

Search warrants were levied on his home, his car and his boat.

The couple had been married for eight years but maintained separate residences, according to authorities.

There were many disputes, those close to the couple said, including the validity of a premarital agreement and arguments over employment, education, and income as child support issues were being decided.

Some close to the couple said there were allegations of poor parental care and nutrition for the couple's sons.

Police said a certificate that showed Henry Lisowski had completed a six-week high-conflict intervention program was found.

A fundraiser is planned for the children on Saturday at a Loma Portal car wash.

Estranged husband of missing woman served with 2nd search warrant

May 9, 2008
OCEAN BEACH – Detectives investigating the disappearance of a Point Loma woman served a second search warrant at the home of her estranged husband Thursday.

San Diego police returned to Henry Lisowski's Ocean Beach apartment to continue sifting through his belongings for clues to the whereabouts of Rosa Lisowski, said Lt. Terry McManus.

The 48-year-old mother has been missing since March 24, when she was last seen walking her son to Barnard Elementary School.

Henry Lisowski is considered a person of interest in the case, McManus said. Investigators first searched his home March 28 and searched his boat in Mission Bay the next day.

The couple were in the midst of a bitter custody battle and divorce when Rosa Lisowski disappeared.

Mother still missing; husband’s home raided
‘Where is Rosa Lisowski?’

May 15, 2008
 For the second time in recent weeks, police investigators searched the home of Peninsula resident Henry Lisowski, scouring for clues to the whereabouts of his missing wife, Rosa Lisowski, a Point Loma mother of four.
The search, aided by a search warrant, was conducted Thursday, May 8 at Henry Lisowski’s residence on West Point Loma Boulevard.
Rosa Lisowski, 48, disappeared the morning of March 24 after walking her 6-year-old son to class at Barnard Elementary School.
The couple, embroiled in a divorce and child-custody dispute, lived in separate residences.
Meanwhile, friends of Rosa Lisowski held a high-profile walk Saturday, May 10 in the hopes someone steps forward with new information, according to walk organizer Heather Peterson, a close friend of Rosa.
Police have named Rosa’s estranged husband as a person of interest. No formal suspects have been named.
“[Police] were looking for anything, any evidence, any materials that would provide us some leads as to the identification of a suspect or suspects,” said San Diego police Lt. Terry McManus.
McManus said serving multiple warrants is typical of an ongoing investigation. Henry Lisowski’s boat and the area around it was also searched in late March, according to investigators.
Though police don’t know where he is, McManus said Henry Lisowski may have family in Canada and has visited Costa Rica.
Police have said the couple was in the middle of a divorce and child-custody dispute.
The May 10 walk for Rosa, which stretched along West Point Loma Boulevard, drew about 25 close family and friends, according to Peterson.
Those who walked with Peterson stopped in front of Henry Lisowski’s house just two days after investigators returned to hunt for added clues. The walk participants also sang songs and said prayers for Rosa, Peterson said.
“It attests to Rosa’s character. She surrounded herself with amazing friends,” Peterson said. “I always wished I had Rosa’s qualities, [her] being such a good mom.”
Peterson said Rosa was always a good mother and that her children, who are staying with family members now, were always respectful to others.
The family has two college-age children and two others, ages 6 and 4.
Peterson has staged several vigils for Rosa and fundraisers for the family since the disappearance in hopes that somebody remembers something that might help police locate Rosa or pinpoint suspects.
Another candlelight vigil is scheduled for Saturday, May 24 at 7 p.m. at the Barons parking lot, 4001 W. Point Loma Blvd., Peterson said.

Reward Increased In Search for Missing Point Loma Mother
Lisowski Was Last Seen In March

August 23, 2008

SAN DIEGO -- The reward for information leading to the whereabouts of a missing Point Loma woman has been increased to $8,000.

San Diego County Crime Stoppers made that announcement Saturday morning. This weekend marks the five-month anniversary since 50-year-old Rosa Lisowski was last seen.

Authorities said no one has seen or heard from Rosa Lisowski since March 24. The mother of three was last seen dropping her son off at his elementary school in the Loma Portal area.

Police have focused their investigation on her estranged husband, Henry Lisowski, and even searched his home, car and boat. He has not been arrested.

Rosa Lisowski's family and friends will hand hand out fliers about the reward and case Saturday at 4 p.m. at Barons Marketplace on Point Loma Boulevard.

Rosa Lisowski's family, Crime Stoppers, and The Sund/Carrington Foundation are contributing to the reward fund.

Husband arrested in case of missing Point Loma woman

11:09 p.m. September 5, 2008

OCEAN BEACH – A five-month police investigation into the disappearance of Point Loma resident Rosa Lisowski ended Friday night with the arrest of her estranged husband on suspicion of murder, San Diego police said.

Henry Lisowski, 67, was arrested at his home on West Point Loma Boulevard about 6 p.m., said homicide unit Lt. Terry McManus.
Rosa Lisowski's body still has not been found.

A family friend said the arrest was good news.

“It's not a happy ending, but there is some closure,” said Wanda Agosto of Rancho Bernardo.

The Lisowskis were in the midst of a contentious divorce and custody battlewhen Rosa disappeared, according to court records. Lisowski, 50 and a mother of four, was last seen March 24 when she walked one young son to Barnard Elementary School.

McManus said that until Friday, the investigation into Rosa Lisowski's disappearance had been handled by the missing persons unit. They conducted extensive searches, interviewed relatives and friends and pursued leads. Detectives served search warrants on Henry Lisowski's home twice and his boat once, and they called him a person of interest in his wife's disappearance.

Reward offers for information totaled $8,000. Relatives and friends held candlelight vigils.

This week, investigators received information that corroborated information and evidence they already had, McManus said late Friday.

“That information was validated today,” McManus said. “We recategorized the investigation from missing person to murder and identified Henry Lisowski as a suspect.

“It's a solid break in the case.”

Henry Lisowski has been cooperative with investigators, even notifying them when he went traveling over the past five months, McManus said. He said the estranged husband is the only suspect in the case, and that the investigative reports will be sent to the District Attorney's Office next week for review.

He said he believed it will be difficult to find Rosa Lisowski's body.

“So much time has passed,” McManus said.

Missing Woman's Husband Arraigned In Her Murder

Watch Video Last Updated:
09-10-08 at 6:27PM

A 67-year-old Point Loma man pleaded not guilty today to murdering his estranged wife, who disappeared about a week before he was supposed to start making child support payments.

Henry Lisowski, who was arrested last week, was ordered held without bail pending another hearing on Tuesday. He faces 25 years to life behind bars in convicted.

Deputy District Attorney Nicole Cooper told Judge David Szumowski that 50-year-old Rosa Lisowski vanished March 24 after taking her young son to school. No remains have been found.

The victim's 19-year-old son reported his mother missing and a thorough investigation was launched. Authorities "began looking at him that evening," Cooper said outside court. "He's been a point of interest from the very beginning."

Cooper said the Lisowskis were embroiled in a heated divorce battle, and she had just been awarded custody of their their two children together and her two from a previous relationship.

Henry Lisowski was supposed to start paying his estranged wife $1,100 a month in child support beginning April 1, and a court hearing had been scheduled so that he could prove he wasn't underreporting his income, the prosecutor said.

Cooper alleged that Lisowski had threatened his wife as far back as last year.

"He told her that he could make her disappear," the prosecutor told the judge.

Several witnesses saw the defendant with fresh scratch marks on his face and arms the day his wife went missing, Cooper said.

She said the victim's blood was found on a kitchen counter in her home and in the cargo area of his vehicle. The defendant's blood was found on the inside of the passenger door of his Lexus, the prosecutor said.

"It is our belief that he transported her body and he disposed of her body," Cooper said outside court.

Last Friday, police received a tip alleging that the defendant had dumped his wife's body in a Dumpster in an alley in the Mount Hope area, the prosecutor said.

She said officers were unable to locate the Dumpster, but arrested Lisowski.

"At this point we don't exactly which Dumpster she was placed in; we only have a general area," Cooper said outside court. "Without that information, we don't even know which landfill she would be at, so we cannot start searching until we get a more definitive location."

Cooper said the defendant has access to large amounts of cash and has ties outside the United States, and told the judge that he traveled to Costa Rica in the midst of the investigation into his wife's disappearance.

Lisowski told people he would like to "grab his kids and leave the country," the prosecutor told the judge.

Prosecutors: Blood of missing woman detected

by Neal Putnam

September 17, 2008

The blood of a missing Point Loma woman was found in her estranged husband’s car and in his kitchen, a prosecutor told a judge on Sept. 9.
Deputy District Attorney Nicole Cooper testified the blood of Rosa Lisowski, 48, was found in the cargo area of her estranged husband’s Lexus. The blood of the estranged husband — Henry Lisowski, 67 — was found in his car as well, said Cooper, which she said could indicate a struggle took place.
Cooper said Henry Lisowski had threatened his wife, saying he “could make her disappear.”
Henry Lisowski pleaded not guilty to murder Sept. 9 and is now scheduled to return to San Diego Superior Court for a preliminary hearing Nov. 17. Judge David Szumowski ordered him held without bail.
Rosa Lisowski, a mother of four, was last seen walking her 6-year-old son to Barnard Elementary School in Point Loma on March 24.
Her body has not been found. The date of her murder is listed on the criminal charge as occurring March 24, however.
Henry and Rosa Lisowski were reportedly going through a bitter divorce. Henry had been ordered by a judge to pay $1,100 in child support for his children.
Friends of Rosa Lisowski told the Peninsula Beacon that Rosa feared her estranged husband.
Police investigators did a number of searches of Henry Lisowski’s home, boat and car and initially called him “a person of interest” during the investigation. He was arrested Sept. 5 at his home on West Point Loma Boulevard.
Candlelight vigils have taken place in Rosa’s memory, and the reward for information about her disappearance and whereabouts was increased to $8,000 in late August.

Man Could Face Death Penalty Over Wife's Disappearance

POSTED: 1:24 pm PST November 17, 2008

SAN DIEGO -- Prosecutors Monday added a special circumstance of murder for financial gain against an Ocean Beach man accused of killing his estranged wife and disposing her body about a week before he was to start paying child support.

The added charge means Henry Lisowski, 67, could face the death penalty if convicted of murdering 50-year-old Rosa Lisowski, whose body has never been found.

The defendant pleaded not guilty to the charges Monday and had his preliminary hearing rescheduled to Feb. 2.

District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis will decide later whether Lisowski will face the death penalty or life in prison without the possibility of parole if convicted.

Deputy District Attorney Nicole Cooper said at Lisowski's Sept. 10 arraignment that Rosa Lisowski vanished March 24 after walking her young son to Barnard Elementary School, near her home in the Midway-Loma Portal area.

The victim's 19-year-old son reported his mother missing and police began looking at Henry Lisowski and a person of interest in her disappearance, Cooper said.

The Lisowskis were embroiled in a heated divorce battle, and she had just been awarded custody of their two children and two other children from a previous relationship, the prosecutor said.

The defendant was supposed to start paying the victim $1,100 a month in child support beginning April 1, and a court hearing had been scheduled so that he could prove he wasn't underreporting his income, Cooper said.

The prosecutor alleged that Lisowski had threatened his wife as far back as last year.

"He told her that he could make her disappear," Cooper said at Lisowski's arraignment.

Several witnesses saw the defendant with fresh scratch marks on his face and arms the day after his wife went missing, Cooper said.

She said the victim's blood was found on a kitchen counter in his home and in the cargo area of his vehicle. The defendant's blood was found on the inside of the passenger door of his Lexus, the prosecutor said.

In early September, police received a tip alleging that the defendant had disposed of his wife's body in a Dumpster in an alley in the Mount Hope area, but officers were unable to locate the Dumpster, Cooper said.

The prosecutor said Lisowski has access to large amounts of cash and traveled to Costa Rica in the midst of the investigation into his wife's disappearance.

Lisowski told people he would like to "grab his kids and leave the country," the prosecutor said at the defendant's arraignment.

Man accused of murder writes letter about death

February 18, 2009

SAN DIEGO COURTS — An Ocean Beach man accused of killing his estranged wife last year wrote a letter to authorities explaining his version of how she died, a detective testified yesterday.

In a five-page letter sent to San Diego police, Henry Lisowski said his wife suffered a head injury when she fell outside his home, and she died on the way to the hospital, said San Diego police Detective John Tefft.

According to the letter, Lisowski decided not to call authorities and instead dumped her body in a trash bin near the Mount Hope neighborhood.
The information came to light yesterday through testimony at a preliminary hearing in San Diego Superior Court. Lisowski, 68, faces a murder charge in the disappearance of Rosa Lisowski, 50, who was last seen March 24.
Her body was never found.

Tefft testified that Lisowski left San Diego at the end of March and stayed away for about three months. Sometime after Lisowski returned, Tefft received the letter at work.

The detective said he recognized the handwriting as Lisowski's. A heading on the note read, “In case of my death provide a copy to . . . ” and included a list of names.

The hearing is expected to continue today.
